Can you believe this guy?

I don't often get trolled, but when I do, it's usually something epic. Take this "Marcus" character for instance: he commented on an article I wrote about a ridiculous book written called The Pink Swastika, by a religious fundy who claims Hitler and his thugs were actually a gang of 'homofascists', intent on corrupting the world with their 'gayness'. This revisionist history completely ignores the fact that ...

Canada does something cool

Canada does something cool, allows Transgender in pageant It's not every day you can feel proud of where you were born geographically. While most of you know how much I abhor patriotism, I am not immune from its power completely, especially when it's something you can be proud of. Jenna Talackova, the transgendered woman whose dreams were dashed last month when she was disqualified from the Miss Universe Ca ...

77 reasons to support bigotry

The Friendly Atheist has an interesting article written by two fans who recently attended a "Marriage Symposium" organized by the Illinois Family Institute and Patriots United (any time an organization has the words "Family" or "Patriot" in it, you know something racist/homophobic/ultra-conservative is going on). One of the pieces of literature at the event that intrigued me was the pamphlet entitled "77 No ...

Norway attacked by Christian extremist

When innocent people are killed and the fog of war has yet to be lifted, it's not uncommon for the press to assume that any terrorist actions must be the work of Islamic fundamentalists. As far as they are concerned, only the Muslim faith can indiscriminately kill innocent civilians. How easily they forget men like Timothy McVeigh or Scott Roeder; men motivated by their religion (in their cases, Christianit ...

Kent Hovind gets spanked

If you don't remember Kent Hovind, it might be because you've come into the atheism scene a little late. He's currently in jail for failing to pay taxes on a number of his enterprises, including a religiously themed amusement park called "Dinosaur Adventure Playland". This bastion to ignorance features not only depictions of humans and dinosaurs co-existing, but also a replica of the Loch Ness Monster. It's ...

Lame Pastor lies about being in Navy SEALS

After being interviewed for a piece on the armed forces by the Patriot-News - a scrappy little Pennsylvania Newspaper that despite its small readership still manages to win accolades - it was discovered that Rev. Jim Moats was not in fact a Navy Seal, and that he had fabricated a story based on the movie "Under Siege". “We deal with these guys all the time, especially the clergy. It’s amazing how many of th ...

Annoying Pastor is actually secret pervert

You know, I've always believed people who claim to want to stop debauchery, sin and vice were secretly engaging in these same activities. It explains why they think whatever they are railing against is a bigger deal than it actually is. One such hypocrite is Pastor Grant Storms, a man who's been fighting against the "debauchery" of New Orleans for nearly a decade: A self-styled "Christian patriot," Storms l ...

Old white guy thinks atheism is “a joke”

I'll never grow tired of old, conservative gas-bags going on about how atheism is either dead, on it's way out, or, as this crusty old white dude said, “a joke". Because he's convinced only an invisible male patriarchal God is the proper explanation as to the existence of the Universe, columnist William Murchison believes the recent remarks of Stephen Hawking, claiming the Universe did not need a supernatur ...

Profile on the FFRF

The New York Times has a profile on the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the atheist group that tackles all sorts of thorny issues related to Church / State separation in the US. This is beyond the standard front lines of atheism ... this is big ball stuff that takes on the American government at all levels. If you're reading about some religious day or custom 'under attack' from atheists, there's a good c ...

Conservatives have their panties in a twist over Avatar

It was bound to happen; a number of conservative blogs are already complaining that Avatar is anti-American leftist propaganda, glorifying the Na'vi and showing humans as the bad guys. The main character's choice to stand by the Na'vi is seen by the right as the ultimate treachery to both God and capitalism (two things that conservatives seem unable to disassociate). The problem with life on earth is not Ca ...
